As part of our weekly content launches in the Adobe Developer Connection, we’ve recently published some new articles for Flash Platform developers.
The new skinning architecture in Flex 4 beta makes it easy to completely change the look and feel of an application. Follow Ryan Frishberg to learn about the new improvements by writing a basic skin for a button and then delving into skinnable components. Building on what you’ve learned there, Evtim Georgiev addresses a number of pain points in skinning, CSS, components, states, animation, text, and graphics tags. He also shows you how to create a custom layout in his article, Spark layouts with Flex 4 beta. Meanwhile, read Tim Buntel’s article to learn how a brand new approach in Flash Builder beta can simplify the development of data-centric applications.
